Question about CD & DVD Burners

1 Answer

DVDR 70 I have cleared a number of discs of programs no longer of interest. The discs were wiped clean. Now I cannot get beyond the message " Disc Empty" trying to get the Timer button on the remote control gets no response. The problem pages at the mag of the manual do not mention this problem and 2 hours of experiment and several searches through the manual have produced no results.

Re: DVDR 70

CD-R are record only- use once.
Whilst 'Removing'  data makes it unavailable  you do not get the space back.
Example suppose you had 500 Mb on a 700 Mb disc.
Giving 200 mb  space to use .
'Removing' some or all the the 500 will not get  space back
it simple makes the file unreadable - does not remove it.

CD-RW's are rewritable, but are considered  unreliable

Gateway 550mx booting

If it's detected in Bios then it's either a Laser pick up issue, i.e. no longer able to read content of a disc OR the Disc itself isn't bootable. It just depends what exactly happens with a message or not happen when looking for boot files on disc.

What do + and _ signs mean on blank dvds

- RecordNow! can record only to the same disc type
it records from. For example, you can record a
DVD only to a DVD+R or DVD+RW disc, and you
can record a CD only to a CD-R or a CD-RW disc.
you were using DVD-R, so it won't work.

hope this helps

DVD-RAW Drive reads most DVDs But not reading this DVD

Visually inspect the bottom of the disc. Look for any medium to large scratches or pits. Try reading the DVD on a few different computers. If the DVD does not work on even some of the other computers, try taking the DVD to a used game store (GameStop/EB Games, for example) and ask them if they can restore the disc for you. They will probably charge you. If you are looking for a free method of cleaning up a disc, try taking glass cleaner (Windex, etc) and a paper towel to the bottom of the disc. Wipe the disc from inside out, not around in a circle. If all else fails, replace the disc.

How to reset computer to factory settings on a acer aspire 6920 G need to wipe compter clean

you need to reload everything from your Recovery Disc. Do you have a recovery disc? If you don't have, just format your hard drive and re-install your OS. Install your motherboard drivers from the CD you have when you first bought it. Also, reinstall the programs you have. In this way, you have everything fresh like brand new.

It wont read any disc,and wont burn any disc

Numerous possibilities:

Lens cannot focus... Haze on lens. Needs to be cleaned.

Unfortunately my experience is that the power supply to the laser section is running on the low side and the unit needs technical repair. I'd be interested in learning if anyone else has suggestions that have worked for them.
